The most Bordeaux like of the WA Bordeaux blends I know. It's intense but not overwhelming. Good acidity, and the fruit flavors are balanced with tobacco and spices. At 8 years old, it's pretty good, not sure I would wait much longer.
Herbs, dark fruit, fairly, but not wonderfully, balanced. Nice Washington Cab blend to have with a Bone-in ribeye to kick off Thanksgiving Weekend. I did not enjoy this as much as the 02, 03, and 05 CDC. Can't remember what I thought of the 04. This is my favorite Cadence wine. One to go of these...wait until 2016 or so.

(Cadence Winery Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red Wine Red Mountain) A surprisingly different nose from most wines found from this vineyard with chocolate, juicy plum, and herbal notes. A very dry wine with a pleasing tannin profile. Still young and needs time to open up. 36% Cabernet; 32% Cab Franc; 20% Merlot; 12% Petit Verdot. 14.4% alcohol.
